The song "Is There Anybody Here" by the legendary folksinger Phil Ochs has a very special meaning to me. At age 15, I gave a Phil Ochs' album to my girlfriend, Sonia. She fell in love with his music, and some years later, she began her own folksinging career. In 1994, she and her sister Cindy put out an album "Disappear Fear" in which they performed a gorgeous cover version of this song, and much later, in 2011, she and her sister reunited for a tribute album to Phil Ochs. Over the years, Sonia and I have remained close friends, and I've watched her embrace the spirit of social justice in her own songs. That something as simple as sharing an album with a teenage sweetheart could lead to something quite marvelous decades later taught me that no small act of kindness should be neglected.
